6:01 pm
any means. the protestor along with civil rights leaders even mayoral candidates say local leaders need to step up and stop these kind of urban shield events but i have to tell you that a lot of the event vendors inside say that really it's all about law enforcement saving lives for officers and civilians. >> about the street being closed, were police ready for that? is everybody okay traffic and stuff like that tonight with that street being closed? >> reporter: there is a convention for law enforcement, there are hundreds of law enforcement and agencies. they were expecting the protest. they have law enforcement at the end of the streets and they are keeping close watch but so far it's been fairly peaceful just noisy and the streets blocked off. >> let's hope it stays that way tonight. juliette goodrich in oakland, thank you. well, a lawsuit blames san jose police for the death of a teenager shot last summer at a house party. the suit says officers pulled

6:04 pm
35 miles north of san diego in carlsbad. >> this is going to take sea water back from the desalinization plant and it will mix it will additional sea water that's being pumped out of the ocean to dilute it back down to normal salt concentration. >> reporter: privately funded by a company called poseidon water, the $1 billion reverse osmosis facility will provide the area with 50 million gallons of water. >> it's locally controlled drought proof and adds a level of insurance in san diego that the economy will be able to continue to grow with a safe reliable water supply. >> reporter: but just like any water supply, desal comes at a cost. san diego has agreed to a 30- year contract with poseidon and will pay roughly twice what it's already paying the southern california water district for water. but poseidon says the investment guarantees a reliable supply and -- >> desalinated water today is less than half the cost just 10 years ago and costs are
6:05 pm
dropping. >> reporter: but not dropping fast enough for professor buzz thompson of stanford. he says there are more cost effectedtive ways to tap into new sources of water. >> recycled water has tremendous potential. there's also tremendous potential on the horizon for the use of stormwater. >> reporter: project engineer chris says building a reservoir is no guarantee it will fill up. >> you can willed all the reservoirs you want but that's not -- you can build all the reservoirs you want but that's not creating water. >> in 10 years of planning, safety and environmental concerns have been answered. considering it costs billions to build a reservoir, they believe desal may be the best option for coastal communities for the next source of drinking water. no doubt about it, hockey is a rough sport. and for san francisco's minor league team, it turned out to be a rough business. the bulls lasted less than 500 days. as elizabeth cook shows us, they left behind a full roster

[ laughter ] >> it's my money. i worked hard for it. i didn't want to see that not come back to me. >> reporter: but other fans like richard kerrigan were not so lucky. >> no, not at all. my ticket partner hasn't been refunded, either. >> reporter: kerrigan is out $90. others are out more than
6:07 pm
$1,000. and it's not just season ticketholders. >> the contract stated that $10,000 per game for cancellations and they had 18 games remaining. >> reporter: that comes out to? >> $180,000. >> reporter: yet the cow palace is owed $180,000. and they are not having much luck either. >> we have tried to email, we tried the numbers that they posted on their website. but no one returns any calls. >> reporter: and then there are the team's corporate sponsors. >> get people calling us every day, you know, that, uhm, have unpaid bills and, uhm, eventually we -- same story they call back and say, hey, we have tried five or six times and no response. >> reporter: the team owners did have a fire sale on the way out the door even pawning their new million dollars scoreboard to a team in alaska. >> we were told for the price of around $375,000. >> reporter: but so far, the proceeds have not reached the fans. and the venue, who are all waiting to put the whole bulls experience on ice. >> there's a lot of people they owe money to and i feel for

burned-out shell of this building in san francisco's mission district. we expected crews to take it down today, but we just learned about a new holdup. kpix 5's ryan takeo is there. what is with this demolition delay, ryan? >> reporter: not all at the same time. okay. there's a lot of re tape so here at big house, inc., keep in mind crews have to be careful because there's concern this building could come down at any time. earlier today, firefighters told us to expect demolition crews this afternoon but since then, we have learned it's not that simple. the owner's insurance adjustor needed to inspect. the city mandates a series of safety steps be followed. now we're waiting for structural engineers to develop a game plan to take things out and shore up the building. that might not happen until tomorrow morning. then the demolition company goes in and that will take time, too,. for the removal it takes time because we have to get to the back of the building so it's take a little, clean it out, take a little, clean it
6:12 pm
out. >> reporter: so we're talking hours or a day? >> days. >> reporter: that demolition is also important because the investigation into how this happened cannot start until investigators can look inside and right now it's too dangerous. live in san francisco, i'm ryan takeo, kpix 5. >> thank you. a traffic alert to tell you about this one a strange one. this is a live look at the golden gate bridge where traffic has slowed because of a deer on the bridge. it looks like it's picking up again. that's because we're hearing the animals that responded on the marin side of the span got off the bridge by vista point. good for them. new at 6:00, water springing up out of nowhere in this creek in sonoma county. it would normally be dry in september. but kpix 5's don ford shows us the surprising reason it's flowing again. >> reporter: behind richmond's house there's a small seasonal creek but normally this time of year it's hardly a creek.
6:13 pm
what did that creek look like a few days ago? >> it was just dust and rocks. sand and rocks, that's all. nothing. >> reporter: suddenly, it started gushing gallons of pure clearwater and we're not talking about a little bit, either. water that's flowing down from the hills tumbling over rocks and collecting into some areas big enough to swim in. this spot looks to be nearly 10 feet deep. >> three days after the earthquake, it came down here and i'm yelling to my wife, you have to see the creek! and this is what we saw. and it's just amazing! i have to confess i was surprised. this is not a very large earthquake. >> reporter: usgs geologist tom holzer has seen this before but didn't expect this phenomenon now. the earthquake essentially moved the earth enough to open some space kind of like poking a hole in a container allowing ground water to combine with gravity. >> and so what's happening is the ground water is able to escape now. it was sort of held back by the lower permeability. >> reporter: yesterday the water started to slow down but
6:14 pm
this morning, things changed. >> now it's starting to creep back up creeping back up again. >> reporter: it's getting bigger. a little bit, yeah. >> reporter: looks bigger. >> yeah. >> reporter: richard also says that animals have started returning to the creek, too. after all, this is still a drought. and any water is still hard to find. this increased water flow isn't going to last forever. scientists say five months from now, it will take rainfall to keep this creek running. in sonoma county, don ford, kpix 5. >> and this unexpected sight may have some troubling consequences. people living up in the hills who rely on ground water could see their wells run dry maybe for good. well, september now officially national preparedness month in california. governor brown issued that proclamation today. it comes two weeks after the napa earthquake. that proclamation calls on all californians to get emergency- ready, being able to care of
